However, from fans to cricket pundits, there were speculations about Kohli being in the team for this tour. The 33-year-old former Indian captain played a total of six innings in every format of cricket from IPL 2022 till now and could not score more than 20 runs in any innings. In such a situation, it was believed that India’s star batsman battling poor form would be a part of the team on the Zimbabwe tour, but he stayed away from the team and the market of speculation got heated once again. Amidst all this, according to news agency PTI, Kohli can be seen in the field with the team in next month’s Asia Cup.

All the players of the team will not get any chance of rest after the Asia Cup till the T20 World Cup is over, they will have only two weeks for rest after the Windies tour.

Some old faces will be seen on Zimbabwe tour

Talking about the players returning to the team going for the ODI series against Zimbabwe, then some old faces will be seen. Fast bowler Deepak Chahar is back. He was away from the field for the last five months due to injury. Keeping in mind the T20 World Cup to be held later this year, the selectors decided to include him in the team as soon as he became fit. Apart from Chahar, Washington Sundar, who is away from the team due to injury, has also returned to the team. Sundar had made a great start to his English county career for Lancashire but had to halt his journey midway due to injury.
